I'm so pleased to announce that Shane Hastie and I are leading a workshop on Working Effectively In Geographically Distributed Agile Project Teams, April 17-18, 2012 in Pleasanton, CA. Yes, that is Elisabeth Hendrickson's Agilistry Studio.
Shane and I first delivered this workshop last year in Australia, when I was there for Software Education‘s SDC. We had a great time, and so did many of the participants. We have since evolved the workshop, to address the needs of the participants who did not have a great time, and to make sure we covered the topics we need to cover.
This is an experiential workshop. You will learn by doing and debriefing. If you've taken my one-day versions over the past year, you've had a taste of what we do in the two-day. You will learn even more from both of us. Remember, we developed this as a geographically distributed pair.
One of the benefits of signing up for the workshop is the informal consulting you can obtain, not just from us, but from the other people there. You'll hear what other people are doing, what's working and what's not working. If you want, you can hear from Shane and me about what's working and not working at our clients as they transition to agile and explore more agile approaches.
